Human Rights Initiative

Company Information

Human Rights Initiative of North Texas (HRI) promotes human rights and dignity by providing free legal and social services to immigrant survivors of human rights abuses. We envision a country and community that welcomes immigrants, recognizes their contributions, and supports them on their path to safety, freedom, and opportunity.

Over the last year, we have shifted to a more democratic decision- making model, centered in staff-led committee recommendations and full-staff consensus processes. We formulated committees as staff, designating them either standing or ad hoc (to solve a time-bound issue). Each individual staff member may chair no more than one committee at a time, and each committee must represent a range of internal departments and roles. Committees include Pay Equity Committee, Onboarding committee, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Team, and ad hoc Hiring committees. We also handle some decision-making as a full staff through consensus processes, which often include thinking periods, opportunity for written comment, anonymous polling, and facilitated discussion. We rotate facilitation of our weekly staff meetings (during which decision-making occurs), so that the power to set agendas and facilitate meetings is shared across the staff.
